Greg Berlanti Signs With CAA

CAA has signed TV showrunner Greg Berlanti, making this one of the largest agency signings in years.

Berlanti, who has been nominated for Writers Guild of America, Directors Guild of America, Producers Guild of America, and Emmy Awards, is well-known for his dedication to his agency, having switched from ICM to Endeavor (now WME) in the early 2000s and is represented by Ari Greenburg ever since.

The decision comes as Berlanti’s longstanding TV home, Warner Brothers, undergoes significant changes. Berlanti’s new staff, helmed by CAA heavyweights Bryan Lourd and Joe Cohen, will help him strategize ahead of his massive overall contract. (In the feature film industry, Berlanti/Schechter Films signed an exclusive first-look feature film deal with Netflix last year.)

Warner Bros. has undergone widespread management changes and reorganisations since the Discovery merger, notably at the TV studio, HBO Max, and DC, whose intellectual property has been a major factor in Berlanti’s TV business. Most of Berlanti Productions’ broadcast series have shown on the CW, although the company and Paramount Global recently lost their majority ownership holdings in the network, leaving its future in doubt.

After acquiring ICM, CAA has been aggressively courting the high-profile clients of WME’s competition, resulting in some high-profile additions, including Charlize Theron and Connie Britton.

Starting out as a staff writer on the smash hit series Dawson’s Creek, Berlanti quickly rose through the ranks to become the show’s executive producer and showrunner. Berlanti’s spectacular climb to fame began with that first job, and he has since created, written, or produced for such shows as Everwood, Brothers & Sisters, Political Animals, Arrow, Blindspot, The Flash, Supergirl, You, Riverdale, Titans, Doom Patrol, All American, and The Flight Attendant.

My Policeman, starring Harry Styles and Emma Corrin, was recently released on Amazon by Berlanti/Schechter Films, the film part of his company that he co-founded with long-time collaborator Sarah Schechter.

They have also finished filming the Netflix series Atlas starring Jennifer Lopez and are in the post-production phase of working on Matthew Lopez’s Red White and Royal Blue. Berlanti directed the critically acclaimed film Love, Simon in 2018, which has since been adapted into a hit television series. Unpregnant, written and directed by Rachel Lee Goldenberg, and starring Ryan Reynolds, as well as Free Guy, written and directed by Shawn Levy, and Moonshot, written and directed by Chris Winterbauer, were all recently produced by Berlanti/Schechter Films.

In addition to the Untitled Rock Hudson Biopic, We Were Never Here, The Sting, Secrets and Wives, and We Were There, Too, the business has projects set up at Netflix under its first-look feature film arrangement with Fox, New Line, Warner Bros., Focus, Amazon, Skydance, and Village Roadshow.

With Scarlett Johansson and Channing Tatum in tow, Berlanti is presently filming the Apple feature film Project Artemis. To this day, he is still represented by Patti Felker of Felker Toczek Suddleson and Slate PR.
